How long does it take to get paid by Amazon
Hello WA friends,
I just got my first check from Amazon! It is so exciting!
Why a check? I am an international associate and we get paid by check.
Along the road I had all the same questions that others have that are new to dealing with Amazon as an associate. I thought it would be good to write a quick post to explain the process now that I have experienced it first-hand.
Firstly, I made my first $100 by the end of May 2016. This was made up of a number of months with sales commissions ranging from a few dollars to about $25. I knew at the end of May that I was there, but only got notified by Amazon at the end of July (29th) because they only pay 2 months later.
Due to the fact that I am an international associate (affiliate) they post a check. Honestly, the postal service in South Africa is not the best, so at one point I was wondering if I would get it at all. It eventually arrived in the mail on the 24th August.
As a South African associate of amazon, I can safely say that it takes us 3 months to actually get paid. Two months for the earnings to be credited to our account and then another month to actually receive the payment.
Next up - a trip to the Forex counter at the bank to deposit my check :-)
This online business world requires a lot of patience...
Keep going, you will get there.
